‘Scott Brownrigg’s turbine idea makes the most of wind tunnelling between building and provides a viewing platform.’

Our concept design for reinventing New York's Park Avenue Medians with a Wind Turbine has been featured in the Sunday Times. Scott Brownrigg partnered with our US arm Scott Brownrigg + Crown to create the unique design proposal for the York “Centerline design competition;” a privately funded design competition to bring Park Avenue into the 21st century and transform its central reservation. 

Inspired by the “expect the unexpected” concept, the design puts an alien like structure in the centre of a structured urban environment by way of the dual purposed Wheel. The centrepiece of the project offers unparalleled views of the city with an environmentally conscious twist; the Wheel is also a wind turbine.The Wheel offers a dynamic viewing experience; from up close high-level views of Park Avenue Skyscrapers to unobstructed northern views for the length of Park Avenue and beyond; offering a first time perspective for the public to enjoy.

The design was also a finalist in this year’s World Architecture Festival awards.
